An exhibition that celebrates the diversity of Modern Mosaic art in Scotland. Five members of the British Association for Modern Mosaic combine to show distinct and original approaches to mosaic expression in work which explores their particular interests in landscape, narrative, recycling and Sacred Geometry. Both traditional and innovative materials can be seen in fascinating contrast in this exhibition.
Scotland is home to some exceptional mosaic artists and this exhibition is a celebration of diversity from five members working under the umbrella of Modern Mosaic Art who explore quite distinctive preoccupations with the medium and very different working practises.
Dunoon, Kilsyth, Dunbar, Crieff and near Kirkcudbright the collections on show represents elements of traditional and innovative techniques combined in work which represent landscape mosaic, archeology, re-cycling and narrative.
Slate, gold smalti, vitreous glass, stone, pebble, hand-painted ceramic and moulded resins are just some of the materials incorporated in these outdoor and indoor pieces made using a variety of techniques.
